At Auto Extract Systems, we have a broad range of highly efficient centrifugal fans for use in conjunction with local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems. We can specify and supply the exact fan you require to get your dust or fume extraction system up and running.
Extractor fans can be supplied in a variety of sizes or electrical phases (single or three-phase) to provide the flow rate of air movement exactly where you need it. Our fans are designed to meet the requirements of all kinds of industrial applications, from dust filtration or fume extraction solutions. Fans designed for industrial environments and can be installed either indoors or outdoors.
Our typical range of centrifugal fans are suitable for airflows ranging from 200m³/h to 11,000m³/h, whilst our other fan range is suitable for airflows from 10,000m³/h, 17,500m³/h and 19,000m³/h. For airflows above this range, extraction fans can be fabricated as per the specification of the system.
How Do Centrifugal Fans Work?
Centrifugal fans work by pulling air into the fan's intake by spinning and deflecting the air at a right angle to the output. As the impeller rotates, centrifugal forces draw air into the fan's shaft then makes it move perpendicularly to the opening of the fan casing. In turn, this allows the fan to produce more static pressure for the air volume, meaning it can move extracted air much further along a duct run.
Our industrial fans feature the motor externally to the impeller, which is located inside the fan casing. This allows for a compact design as well as optimum cooling of the motor.
Benefits of Centrifugal Fans
There are many benefits to using centrifugal fans for LEV systems in addition to high-pressure air flows, these include:
- Highly efficient pressure volumes
- Cost-effective and low energy consumption / energy-saving fans
- Low noise levels (Decibels (dB))
Centrifugal Fan Accessories
We can also offer soft connections, acoustic boxes and anti-vibration mountings for all types of extraction fans.
Fans are manufactured in stainless steel and can be powder-coated or electro-galvanised.
- Max. operating temperature: 80 °C
- Ambient temperature: -20 °C to +40 °C
Manufactured to the Highest Standard
Fans and blowers are manufactured in accordance with the following directives and standards:
- Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
- EMC Directive 2014/30/EU
- EN ISO 12100:2010
- EN 60204-1
Energy-related Products - ErP
The aim of ErP 2015 (Energy-related Products) is to reduce CO2 emissions by 20%. ErP 2015 defines the lowest permitted efficiency for all fans with a power output from 125W to 500kW. Minimum efficiency relates to the whole system including fan, motor and, if relevant, transmission. ErP 2015 is valid from 01/01/2015 and is a requirement that must be met in order to use the product in the EU Member States. We wish to support the development of increased energy efficiency, sustainability, responsible manufacturing and recycling. All our products that are covered by the Directive 2009/125/EC either satisfy or exceed the requirements of ErP.

A Complete LEV System
Centrifugal fans are to be used in conjunction with a number of products, from our fume extraction, dust extraction or vehicle exhaust extraction range. At-source capture hoods will capture the contaminants in the LEV system and draw them towards the centrifugal fan, and depending on the working process will expel particulates via a filtration unit, or directly to the atmosphere via a high-velocity cowl, as per HSG258: Controlling Airborne Contaminants at Work: A Guide to Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV).
